Why choose aluminium for doors and windows

why choose aluminium

There is a huge amount of choice out there for your new doors and windows.

Your frames can be UPVC, timber or aluminium. Choice used to be quite limited. However with recent advancements of the use of aluminium, you are only limited by your imagination. So, why choose aluminium?

Aluminium and its properties make it a fantastic choice for bi-folding doors. Firstly, it is a low density metal that responds well to manipulation. It is lightweight and robust though.  Aluminium resists corrosion, and copes well with the expansion and contraction caused by extreme weather conditions, meaning that it stays in great condition whatever the weather.

UPVC has a life span of around 15-20 years, although it can start to look tired and worn after only 3-4 years. Aluminium on the other hand has a much longer life span.

Aluminium is great if you are looking for the eco-friendly option. It is the second most abundant metal on earth, and a fully sustainable product. Aluminium requires one of the lease harmful metal processes in production, and is non-toxic. It is fully recyclable and therefore has a minimal ecological footprint.

Aluminium bi-fold doors and windows are strong and durable. They will fit into a tradition property where the aluminium will contrast with the old stone, or into contemporary properties they will offer a sleek finish.

Windows and doors made from aluminium can help you improve the heat gains and heat loss through your windows by as much as 60% when combined with a thermal brick. This just can’t be beaten by expensive timber and UPVC equivalents.
